So long, road tax stickers!

The road tax stickers on vehicles could be a thing of the past with the Automated Enforcement System (AES), which is to be implemented nationwide this year.
Although the AES will be used to catch speedsters and other traffic violations, Road Transport Department (JPJ) automotive engineering division director Mohamad Dalib said there are plans to use the system to detect vehicles with expired road tax.

When the plans are implemented, Mohamad said vehicle owners would only have a small sticker to remind them of their road tax expiry date.
“Cameras will take photos of licence plates and the details of the vehicle will be checked against our database. If your road tax has expired, a summons will automatically be issued,” he said, adding that implementation was still being discussed.
According to Mohamad, 250 high-resolution cameras will be set up along highways and federal roads to detect, track and capture images and video footage of motorists who break traffic laws.
This battery of cameras will be supplemented by mobile radar cameras manned by police and enforcement personnel.
Captured images will immediately be transmitted to a central database shared between the JPJ and police. Summonses issued will include those images as evidence.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha has touted the AES, announced in 2010, to significantly bring down the number of road accidents and fatalities, following the success of other countries like France which uses a similar system.
